    Abstract

    Slow strain-rate technique has been used extensively in the study of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of pipeline steel. Results were obtained to guide development and evaluation of SCC control methods and to study the SCC process. Application of the slow strain-rate technique led to determination of the specific environment of practical importance, identification of effective SCC inhibitors, determination of critical potential range for SCC, increased awareness of the major role of strain rate in the SCC process, and development of coatings incorporating SCC inhibitors.
